Daniel Romano 

Workin’ for the Music Man (YC)

Daniel Romano’s biography reads like the most melancholy of Hank Williams tunes: adopted by an older couple who teach him the six-string, loses most of his vision in one eye, meets musical birth parents. After the death of his adopted parents, Romano records in their empty house, but the recordings are lost when the house is demoed while he’s away. So the Attack in Black frontman (also the Daniel in Daniel, Fred & Julie) started from scratch. Perhaps the freedom of beginning all over again gave him clarity because this is a damn lovely record, tinged with sorrow and a survivor’s strength. Traditional country without being staid, punk in spirit without the abrasive anger, Romano’s vision and voice is clear.
